"I just spent 3 hours cutting, decorating and cooking a triple batch of these cookies. I should have tasted the first batch out of the oven, then I could have saved some time by throwing the whole thing out. These are not shortbread cookies. Other then them being sweet, there is absolutely no taste to them. Very, very disappointed. A waste of time and money!!!!"
"Very easy to make, both wife and I have made this recipe twice. The second time around we added 1/2 cup chopped macadamia nuts. Cut roll into 3/8 slices. This should be a "FIVE STAR". Thanks from Hawaii!"
"This recipe is fantastic! I ended up making shortbread jam cookies with this recipe, and my mother who doesn't like overly sweet things said that this was the perfect recipe!"
